Good climb; only pro is confidence! Definitely an "R."

Come on, "only pro is confidence"? I got a bomber #1 C4 just before the face (10 ft. up), then you get the bomber confidence inspiring rusty 1/4" bolt at 30 ft. Okay, I guess I see what you mean, anywho, fun route overall, and at 5.6, it's not like you need any pro anyway;)

Please update pro description - Tulip has a new(ish) bolt protecting the slabby face. Still quite runout, but less butt-clenching than before.

Second only lead ever, easily protectable (small cams bottom and top of crack) and fun. Eschar 5.4 (my first and not a good beginner lead) made this feel breezy even for an easy moderate.
